In a previous life, I was a drummer. While almost everyone I know has a firm understanding of what type of music I enjoy, few people remember the days when I was the one making the music. Of course this previous life was high school and while short lived, it still to this day ranks in the top two most eventful times in my life (the other is most likely still up in the air).
There are certain moments in life when things are put into perspective for you. Sometimes it’s a large, awe inspiring moment. Other times it’s just a simple chat with an old friend. While today’s events don’t really fit either of those examples, it was a moment of sheer perspective.
